The celebrations of the 110th anniversary of Erasmus School of Economics continue end of June with the Economie Festival: a weekend full of debates, short lectures, live music, cabaret, movies, a talk show, and a DJ in the city centre of Rotterdam. 

The festival starts on Friday 28 June and continues until Sunday evening 30 June. It takes place at several venues throughout the city: Debatpodium Arminius, Walhalla theatre, and the cinemas KINO and LantarenVenster. It is open to students, economists, and citizens interested in economic issues. Special guests include the Minister of Finance, many well-known professors, policymakers, politicians, journalists and writers. The event will be held in Dutch.

Ticket sale

You can buy separate tickets for each event or a passe-partout for all events during the whole weekend. Separate ticket prices range from 12 euros to 25 euros and a passe-partout is 40 euros. However, if this price keeps you from buying it, you can also choose to buy the tickets for a reduction of 50 percent. And for students, there is a special offer of 15 euros for a passe-partout. The festival is generously supported by Erasmus School of Economics and the Royal Dutch Economic Association, which celebrates its 175th anniversary this year.
